At the begining of our journey to the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan we did some site seeing, visiting the Baptismal site, the Dead Sea, Mt. Nebo, and Petra. We were also blessed to have our friend Robert E. Wallace traveling with us. An expert in biblical history, Wallace's commentary on the land we traveled through made the experience extra special. It was crazy walking around such places were biblical events took place. Here is the begining installment of my photo journal.

Me standing behind the Plains of Moab.
The Team at the Dead Sea. Quick fact, the Dead Sea is over 100 times more salty than the Pacific Ocean,thus reflecting in the bouyancy we humans have when swimming in it. You can literally be in 20ft of water and be standing straight up and not sink. Its incrediable!
The view from Mt. Nebo. This is where Moses was shown the promised land by God in Numbers 27.
Petra. This is the area where the Edomites come from. Also the inspiration of notorious rap song "Shawerma"
More Petra dwellings.

Thank you Mr. Wallace. You will be missed.
